rated "Best in the Park Cities & North Dallas Area"

See the article in the Dallas Morning News

Serving over 1,500 Homes in North Dallas

Please join and support your neighborhood!

Memberships are through 12/31/2020

And if you live south of Forest Lane, east of Hillcrest Road, be sure to add a membership for the 5 Star ENP Private Police patrol!

Hillcrest Forest donates $2,500 to 5 Star ENP Police Patrol to protect our neighborhood.

Our tornado damaged streets have become a magnet for thieves.

These funds will pay for 4 weekends of 8-hour, all-day security patrols on Saturdays & Sundays, exclusively in that area.  We don't want thieves anywhere in our neighborhood, and our residents who are already dealing with severely-damaged homes deserve better than having their unoccupied houses burglarized.

The 5 Star ENP plans to continue these extra patrols

with their own funds, for as long as the problem continues and their budget allows.

Words are not adequate to express our sympathy for our neighbors whose lives were up-ended by this disaster.

Thankfully, no one was killed.

Members fund a rest area on the Northaven Trail

120 of our members collectively donated over $10,000 to fund a beautiful 3-bench seating area on the Northaven Trail, the hike & bike park that runs through our neighborhood.

Our association donated an additional $2,500 to the Trail for general improvements. 

The Northaven Trail is forever, and those 3 massive stone benches will be there for a very long time.

Hillcrest Forest Residents donate $14,000 to Kramer Elementary for Playground

At our Annual Meeting, Jennifer Burks, PTA President of our neighborhood elementary school, explained why Kramer needs to replace some very expensive pieces of playground equipment, removed recently due to age & safety.

At the close, HFNA President Bruce Wilke presented Jennifer with checks totalling over $14,000, donated by our Association members to help Kramer restore its playground.

If you were there, you saw how astonished she was.  After she recovered, she said that they were "so very fortunate to be part of such a great community" and that she was "overwhelmed at the generosity of Kramer's neighbors".


Our association would like to thank everyone who donated to this project.  You made a difference!
